Not many radios have the capability of switching tuner frequency sets. There area at least six different regional frequencies setting used around the world. In the US FM changes on the .1,.3,.5 odd numbers; others change on the .0,.2,.4...evens. The US changes AM on the 10's 890,900,910...others by the 9's. Delphi has a radio that can be set for USA, Europe/Australia, Japan, Argentina, China or SAUDI ARABIA*[*once set here can't be changed]. It also has a USB port and AUX jack on the front. It can be had with Sirius or XM and a weather band [which may only be applicable in the US]. This does not have short wave but may have RTS(?) radio traffic info) capability if in Europe. Check this link to Pana-Pacific who are retailers/resellers. There is a trick to getting it set for the right country and you may have to request the information from them directly, but it can be done.

I have a hd522u kenwood radio from America and I put it in my car in Israel I can't get the Europien frequency who knows how to Chang it thanks

Buy a new radio. It is not authorized to work in another country. Their frequencies may be totally different from the USA. This is true in Canada and Mexico. Send it back to the USA and stop using it at once! It may be interfering with some important frequencies.

Cobra 19 DX IV, I bought this unit in america, but i live in the U.K. and can't pick up any channels, does this unit Only work in america, can i get somthing for it to work in england??? Thanks...

  • The UK uses more FM frequencies than AM frequencies. So the CB will work over there just fine but you will need to find someone who uses them frequencies as well or it may no be much fun. Here is a frequency chart for what we in America call import radios shipped from over there. 27.555 FM is the main frequency used in the UK but the Cobra 19 is a strictly AM CB. Also on the link on the far right are the standard 40 channel frequencies from the UK version of CB's and not one is the same as the Cobra 19 as the UK uses FM for their 40 channel CB radios.
  • Here is the 40 channel CB frequency chart utilized in America
  • Hope this clarifies things for you.

Poor radio reception.I've tried a new aerial mast,no improvement. CD player sounds fine. Any ideas? (Passat Est.2003)

Important! Please give copies to all your VW Technicians C 91--99--07 E 1999 Volkswagen of America, Inc. 1 Subject: Model(s): Group: Number: Date: AM Radio, Poor Reception 1999, 2000 91 99--07 New Golf, New Jetta, Aug. 2, 1999 New Beetle, Passat Condition AM reception is poor. May be caused by: ? An incorrect antenna mast installed for the antenna base equipped with the vehicle ? Poor ground at the antenna base or radio ? Poor battery ground to chassis or engine ? Poor antenna cable connection at Radio ? Corrosion at the antenna coaxial connectors at radio or antenna Service Vehicles are equipped with either a Bosch or a Clarion antenna base mounted on the roof and (for shipping purposes) the appropriate matching mast is located in the luggage compartment. If radio antenna masts are removed from vehicles and stored until vehicles are sold, there is a chance that an incorrect mast can be installed at the time of delivery. Note: Mismatched antenna mast and base will cause poor AM radio reception. The antenna base and mast can be identified visually as follows: (Cont. on Page 2)91-A260 requires gloss finish antenna mast 57mm 49mm Bosch 91-A261 requires matte finish antenna mast 61mm 41mm Clarion 91-A262 Technical Bulletin Important!

Base is more oval in shape than Bosch (approx. 61mm x 41mm). ? Two screws on underside of base are painted. ? Requires matte finish antenna mast. If antenna mast matches the antenna base correctly: -- Check antenna coaxial cable connections --arrows-- for corrosion and clean if necessary (DO NOT apply stabilant). Passat coaxial cable connection for radio is under the carpet on right side of tunnel near shifter. -- Ensure that coaxial cable is firmly seated in radio (Passat cable connection, see previous step). -- Check ground at the antenna below roof Nut --4-- (torque = 7+1 Nm) must firmly secure antenna to roof).

How to change tuner to pick up all frequence's eg: goes from 95.5 to 95.7 how do i get it to change to 95.6 thanks jason

It will only tune into odd numbered stations because US radio station only broadcast in odd number stations (ex 95.5,95.7,96.3). You can change the area. Area 1 is North America, Area 2 is other areas. Press "Menu"->"Setup"->"Tuner"->"Tuner Area", then select 1 or 2. After setting, press and hold "Menu" for at least 2 seconds. This may give you the frequency you are looking for.

Car Radio Frequency program

you type in the frequency you want and the scanner should round it off at the nearest frequency its step size will allow, that works fine with the radios of the past but soon (in less than 4 years here in america) the communications industry is going to more narrowbanded radios with new modulation schemes for more effiencent use of the spectrum.

It only seems to tune in odd radio stations

Unless you're in Europe, it's not supposed to. No stations (in America) exist on even numbers.
